thanks for catching that, roflwaffle. I figure its a fair price. I did a lot of work to convert it.

Where's the update to the link? A CA-Certified VX-Del Sol sounds trey-cool.

I have to do a new ad. Some loser erased my ad because I mistakenly posted my account link. Oh well.

Based on KBB, the Del Sol is worth around or a bit over $2k depending on condition, and a d15z1 plus needed components can be had for ~$400-1000 in CA, so that's ~$2.5-3k for labor, which IMO is excessive. YMMV! ;)

I was charged $400 just to swap the engine in my crx hf for another crx hf engine, when I went in to ask for a price on the swap my mecanic asked if it was an engine for that make and model because if it wasn't the price was going to be many times more, and that was just for the engine, no computer, wiring, sourcing of parts, I've also had people tell me that they would buy my civic vx for as much as $5,000 if I wanted to sell it, so $6000 for a 50+mpg del sol doesn't seem that bad, and if you don't like the price, as you said, you can build one your self, or are you not up for that?

del sol
 
yes, they do book private party at around 2 to 3k depending on condition blah, blah etc. But considering all of the work, research, labor I put into this to get it 100% smog legal in California, I think it is worth it.

Mechanics can be rip-off artists too IME. As for using a del sol I don't think it'd be worthwhile since it's one of the fattest little car I've ever seen. A 5th or maybe 6th gen four door weighs about the same but provides more space w/ lower aero drag. Toss in a CX/VX trans and it should get similar highway and maybe slightly less in the city for a lot less cash, even if ya end up paying someone to swap transmissions and drop a new clutch in there. In terms of market value, diesel rabbits are crazy high, but that doesn't mean I think it would be fair to get a few grand for something I've put a few hundred into. :rolleyes:

Getting it smog legal shouldn't be a problem AFAIK. Granted, it's not as easy as a gas to diesel swap, since the ref actually has to smog it ;), but it ain't rocket surgery either. I mean, aside from the ECU, what emissions specific stuff was different? Keeping in mind of course it doesn't have to be CA spec, just Fed spec w/ over ~12k miles IIRC.
